10. ISA transfers

10.1 Current Tax Year Subscriptions can only be transferred in full, which means it is not possible to transfer only some of your Current Tax Year Subscriptions to or from another ISA. Previous Tax Year Subscriptions can be transferred in full, or, where permitted in the terms for that ISA, in part.

Transferring from another ISA Manager

10.2 If you wish to transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part from an ISA held with another ISA Manager to this account, according to ISA Regulations, this can be done by contacting us. You cannot transfer part of your Current Tax Year Subscriptions. On receipt of:

(a) a completed transfer instruction from you, we will send it (together with confirmation that we will accept the transfer) to the existing ISA Manager within the timescales in the ISA Regulations; and

(b) the relevant subscriptions and accompanying information from the existing ISA Manager, we will credit the subscriptions to this account within the timescales in the ISA Regulations.

Transferring from another cash ISA with us

10.3 If you wish to transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part from a cash ISA held with us to this account, this can be done by contacting us. You cannot transfer part of your Current Tax Year Subscriptions. When we receive a completed internal ISA transfer instruction from you, which meets the requirements of the ISA Regulations, and subject to the Specific Terms of the other ISA we will transfer the relevant subscriptions to this account.

Transferring to an ISA with another ISA Manager

10.4 You can transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full (including interest) and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part (including interest) to another ISA Manager without loss of tax-free status. You cannot transfer part of your Current Tax Year Subscriptions. When we receive a valid transfer instruction from your new ISA Manager, we will process the request by sending the funds requested and accompanying information to the new ISA Manager within five business days of the date of receipt (the full transfer process may take up to 15 business days).

10.5 If you are transferring Previous Tax Year Subscriptions to another ISA Manager, and you have made withdrawals that relate to those subscriptions, you will not be able to replace those with the new ISA Manager without them counting towards your annual ISA subscription limit. [Also, if you have chosen to have interest paid out to you, rather than kept in the account, those withdrawals cannot be replaced with the new ISA Manager without them counting towards your annual ISA subscription limit]. Remember that outside the Cancellation Period, you may make up to 4 withdrawals each year without charge or loss of interest.

Transferring to another cash ISA with us

10.6 You can transfer your Current Tax Year Subscriptions in full (including interest) and/or Previous Tax Year Subscriptions in full or in part (including interest) to another suitable cash ISA held with us, without losing your tax-free status. You cannot transfer part of your Current Tax Year Subscriptions. If you would like to make a transfer you will need to provide us with a valid transfer instruction. Remember that outside the Cancellation Period, you may make up to 4 withdrawals each year without charge or loss of interest.

11. Tax

11.1 We will notify you in writing if this account becomes or will become invalid because of a failure to satisfy the provisions of the ISA Regulations.

11.2 ISAs are a savings scheme initiated by the Government and, as such, are subject to change by them. For example, the favourable tax treatment may not be maintained and it is dependent on the ISA holder's individual circumstances.

11.3 If the holder of this ISA dies, interest will be paid tax-free, up until either the completion of the administration of their estate, the date this ISA is closed or on the third anniversary of their death, whichever happens first.
